Focus Area 5
Women Empowerment Initiatives
In line with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8 Gender Equality, our goal is to end discrimination against women and girls because no one should be excluded from receiving basic human rights.
To achieve our objective in creating sustainable communities across the Asia Pacific region, we invest in projects designed to help in providing disadvantaged women and girls with education & skills, and awareness about their rights, since women’s empowerment is crucial for the sake of economic growth and development.
Oasis Sari-Sari Store
Oasis Sari-Sari store is one of the business models in the form of small retail outlets that can be found in almost all neighbourhoods in the Philipines and is key to the communities, providing job opportunities and livelihood to the locals. RDC is currently providing financial assistance to a number of beneficiaries in the areas around the City of Davao, Mindanao, to set up their own Sari-sari store as a means of up-grading their livelihood and subsequently the economic growth of the community around them.

In line with the SDG aim of ensuring healthy living and promoting well-being for all ages, RDC intends to assist the community of Khovd City through the committee of the Central Mosque by providing health screening and focusing on women’s health education.
